What is my spiritual message for Briana?

Because your name comes from the male Brian then self-love is going to be an important lesson for you. You are probably aware that not many people can learn to love themselves with acceptance. The fact you have two "aa's" in your name and a 6 in numerological terms means that you will be on a mission to love yourself in a healthy way. While there is a growing number of people who understand the importance of loving themselves, many are unsure how to go about it. Maybe as a child, Briana, you were fortunate to have a few people in our early years who set an example of what it meant to live in the world and show unconditional self-love in our early years.

Most of us are used to hearing negative voices in our heads that lead to thoughts of judgment. This limited and unhealthy way to be is what we are taught. For generations, self-love was viewed as selfish and negative. Self-love has a bad reputation. Most people don't even know any better. If they could, they would first love themselves unconditionally and then encourage others to do the same.

Our ultimate truth is behind our name. In life, you may find you are protecting yourself from emotional pain by making those judgments and resisting the fact that you need to take care of yourself. Maybe, Briana, you fear the things you don't love in ourselves, in your life, and the past. This is because as human beings we fear the unhealthy relationships we have with ourselves. It is common for those called Briana to feel constantly wounded, angry and powerless. Deep down, though you probably recognize that you need to self-love and relate to the honesty, respect, and understanding that you do deserve from others around you. 

It's going to be a challenge to have a healthy relationship with yourself - if we don't develop an understanding, acceptance, and kind relationship with the internal person then life will be hard. It is crucial that we all understand that how we relate to others and the world around us will depend on our inner relationships with ourselves. Simply, if you judge, reject, and criticize other people's behavior, then this reflects on your own life. If we have a negative relationship with ourselves, our relationships with others will be destructive. Therefore, Briana, loving yourself is your true goal.

Now, I will say, human beings share a common liberating truth: We all struggle to love ourselves unconditionally and fully, regardless of how much success we have encountered. This is the most important life lesson we all need to learn. This is the ultimate life lesson that you, me, and all of us, struggle with.

This is the way it has been for generations. We live in an age where people are more aware of their need for a better way of life. We are all open to new ways to relate to ourselves, each other, and the world. These new ways must be rooted in love, kindness, compassion, rather than aggression. I hope this has some meaning for you Briana.
